There's a curious relationship between disco and Krautrock.
One is deeply physical, the other deeply cerebral, but the connecting line has been well travelled – think Can's 'I Want More' or Giorgio Moroder conjuring electronic trickery from his Munich base.
Flamingods lace together disco exuberance with Krautrock's infinite percussive appeal on 'Paradise Drive', reaching upwards to psychedelic heaven in the process.
Informed by their outstanding live shows, 'Paradise Drive' is a head-long charge into neon-clad disco exuberance and Clash is most definitely here for it.
Stripped from incoming album 'Levitation' – out on May 3rd – you can tune in below.

1 London Village Underground
